This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.

    This week we're seeing how a little bit (or a lot, rather) of media coverage can go a long way. While we have new entries from Michael Jackson (Xscape) and Iamsu! (Sincerely Yours), we're also seeing a few classic albums re-enter the Billboard 200, plus there's the aftermath of the Solange/Jay Z elevator blow out. With MJ back on peoples' minds, not only did Xscape make a strong debut at #2, but...
